Synopsis

Acting for Young Actors For Money or Just for Fun by Mary Lou Belli, Dinah Lenney

Do you know a teen that's been bitten by the acting bug? Here's just the book they need! Acting for Young Actors , aimed at teens and tweens, lets kids hone their skills and develop their craft. It begins with the five W's: Who am I? What do I want? Why do I want it? Where am I? When does this event take place? Sounds basic - but many young child actors are told simply to get up there and act. This book explores each of these questions, using helpful exercises to allow young actors to work through problems of character identity and motivation. With comprehensive chapters on auditioning, rehearsal, and improvisation, plus a primer on how young actors can break into film, theatre, and television, Acting for Young Actors is every kid's ticket to the big time. It is aimed at teens age 12-18, and is written in a full accessible style.
